‘hotTug’ jacuzzi boat

dutch brand hotTug have conceived a wood-fired hot tub which you can sail or if preferred – a tugboat in which you can have a jacuzzi. the design is constructed from wood and fitted with glass fiber reinforced polyester, featuring a stainless steel stove with a single wall pipe. ‘hotTug’ is able to hold a capacity of up to six to eight people, with the stove capable of heating the boat’s 2000 liter water capacity to 100 degrees F in 3 hours. users are able to also choose from two motor options – one with an integrated electric motor of 2.4 KW or another with an outboard engine (electric or petrol). enjoying the surrounding scenery is able to be experienced from a new, relaxed perspective.

  • Looks like a lot of fun, but not suitable for the busy canals. With a lot of wakes from other boats you will soon sit in the same murky water that surrounds the tub. However I think this is great silent lakes and other still waters.

  • Next plan is: 1) move to Amsterdam 2) sell my car 3) buy one of these… 🙂
